How Do You Keep Fairy Tales

It seems wherever I go
people come into my life or out of it
leaving me only a memory
touching me where I can feel it
and I wasn't through knowing them.

How do I halt my life
to gather and keep around me those that I've known
and loved?
How do I know when I'm seeing you for the last time?

And how do you keep
fairy tales
from losing
their magic?

For fairy tales
are the happiest
stories we read.
And though we must part, we know we can always return
to read fondly through
the gold-bound leaves of our memory.

Thank you for touching my life
and letting me know you
and love you.
